I started this thread with the hope that some noob in his off colored ghillie suit would read this and realize that he's not invisible. It's not my intention to bash on the noobs. If anything, I want them to read this and learn so that next time they are on my team, they are a little more effective on the field.
Well, if we're doing this to improve field effectiveness, why leave out the "noobs" in the camouflage standing behind a sapling who think they're invisible (or much skinnier than they are!)? I see a lot more noobs in camouflage than ghillie to tell you the truth. It also doesn't do much good to be wearing camouflage when your shiny metalflake speedball marker catches every eye on the field. A misused ghillie is a little obvious, but there are far greater noob offenses (in number and amplitude) than this handful (relatively speaking) of players. Good intentions become suspect when focused upon the minority, as opposed to the greater opportunity.
Most people resent unsolicited advice, especially from strangers, but if you're trying to teach someone something, most people learn better from being shown (example), than being told what to do. That's the difference between leadership, and presumed authority.
